Speaker: Craig Boddington
Where: 2013 SCI Convention, Reno, NV
When: 01/25/2013 – 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
We love to read the great old stuff about Africa–but Africa has changed (and not all for the bad!). Craig Boddington’s first safari was in Kenya 35 years ago. Since then, he has hunted Africa 100 times in 16 countries. He will take you back to the great old days of Safari…and bring us up to date with today’s Africa.
There have been some losses: Kenya, Southern Sudan, Chad, the days of the big tuskers, availability of lions and rhinos. But there are also many gains: more countries are open to hunting; more game animals; and the “plains game safari”–all more available and affordable than ever before.
Included will be discussion of how CITES and U.S. Fish and Wildlife rules have impacted trophy importation.
